Felix Says Stop Talking

This is how amazing people really are when channelled positively!! What an inspiration this young man is to me.

¬†When Felix announced that he wanted to take part in UNEP’s programme, his teacher thought he only meant to plant one tree but soon realised his pupil had a more ambitious project in mind. “Let’s plant millions of trees,” he proposed. “A million in each country of the world.”

Felix travelled the country to deliver his presentation to other schools, creating a network of young tree-planters and co-founding Plant-for-the-Planet. Two years later, his ‘Stop Talking. Start Planting’ campaign has rallied huge support from hundreds of other children and helped to plant a million trees across Germany.
